BIOLOGY 0610/22 Paper 2 Multiple Choice (Extended) October/November 2020
45 minutes You must answer on the multiple choice answer sheet. You will need: Multiple choice answer sheet Soft clean eraser Soft pencil (type B or HB is recommended)
INSTRUCTIONS There are forty questions on this paper. Answer all questions. For each question there are four possible answers A, B, C and D. Choose the one you consider correct
and record your choice in soft pencil on the multiple choice answer sheet. Follow the instructions on the multiple choice answer sheet. Write in soft pencil. Write your name, centre number and candidate number on the multiple choice answer sheet in the
spaces provided unless this has been done for you. Do not use correction fluid. Do not write on any bar codes. You may use a calculator. INFORMATION The total mark for this paper is 40. Each correct answer will score one mark. A mark will not be deducted for a wrong answer. Any rough working should be done on this question paper.
